The Shadow knows that every 10th episode, we pick a movie for some reason or other instead of our usual random drawing. Now all of our fans know! So join the Snark Knights as we discuss 1994's "The Shadow," a modern adaptation of a non-traditional comic hero from the days of radio and pulp novels.
The Shadow has the power to cloud weak minds and convince people that his movie is better than it really is! Watch as our hero protects New York during that pleasant stretch between the World Wars and ignore everyone drinking in public despite Prohibition. Behold a murderers' row of character actors. Enjoy (?) a surprising level of casual racism towards Asians and mysticism that had been absent from American cinema since "Big Trouble in Little China." But mostly just come along with us and have fun as we discuss this goofy slice of 90's pie.
